Deep roots. Alice is finishing a chapbook at the Hudson Valley Writers Center. Her first novel got off to a running start in Marcia Bradley’s Beginning Novel workshop at Sarah Lawrence Writing Institute; completed, it was well-critiqued during Pat Dunn’s Advanced Novel workshop. Alice first stepped into The Writing Institute stream with Steve Lewis; his classes, plus transformative days in Cetara—for the first SLC workshop in 2017 and the most recent in 2019—inspired flash fiction and poetry. Her fiction, poetry, and reviews have been published in print journals and on-line. She was a finalist for the Atlanta Review’s International Poetry Competition. Grandma is a good job too. Shown here, she communicates with one of the twins born to Julia Romano Gray — week-old namesake Alice Campbell Gray.
